A major expansion at Neueda’s Belfast base will see its headcount almost double on the back of a £12m investment.
Digital transformation is more than just a concept, with one Belfast company specialising in this field confident of a bright future.
So confident is Neueda, in fact, that it’s putting £12m into upping its staff numbers from an already impressive 200, right up to 365 in the coming years.
Now featured on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 list for the second year running, Neueda is on the lookout for software engineers, IT consultants and data analysts.
Neueda delivers large-scale, mission-critical software projects to public and private sector clients globally.
The company’s revenues are growing 30pc annually, with hopes of hitting £100m by 2022, largely on the back of this week’s investment.
“We’ve a great team of committed, talented people, and their combined efforts have helped us achieve strong growth over the last five years,” said Brendan Monaghan, CEO of Neueda.
“Together we are building something special and we’re keen to accelerate to the next level. This investment in new people will help us broaden our reach and cement our position with customers in capital markets, utilities and across the public sector.”
Monaghan was a finalist in EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2017, and he said his company wants people across many aspects of industry.
“We’re looking for a broad spectrum of skills and experience levels including FE [further education] students, apprentices and graduates, to those considering a career change or who may be returning to the workforce. The potential to excel, be well rewarded and have fun while doing it is what we offer in return.”
The 165 new jobs include 130 technical roles, ranging from entry-level positions through to experienced software engineers and solution architects. The remaining 35 are consulting and project delivery posts, as well as key hires in sales and business operations.
“Neueda’s decision to almost double its workforce in Belfast will enable it to sustain the impressive growth that we have seen in recent years,” said Alastair Hamilton, Invest NI’s CEO.
“As part of our business strategy, we are working closely with companies like Neueda that have the ability to scale quickly, supporting them to create jobs and increase competitiveness.”
